  • Goedhuis, April 2012

    A fantastic 2005 which offers wonderful savoury notes paired with sweet fruit and spice. Impressively dense, this took a bit of time to come round but what a cracker. Its balance is still very much intact as well. A delicious bottle that will impress.

  • Goedhuis, April 2006, Score: 87-90

    The 2005 is a fine example with ripe bramble berry fruit and tight, balanced tannins. It is a wine that is extremely popular with many of our clients due to its quality and excellent value. Drink 2010 - 2018.

  • Robert Parker, June 2015, Score: 89

    The proprietors of Sénéjac, the Rustmanns, have hit a home run with this 2005 cru bourgeois. Dense plum/purple, with sweet cassis fruit as well as notes of forest floor and spice, this wine is medium to full-bodied and concentrated, with ripe tannins. This sleeper of the vintage clearly over-delivers and should drink well for at least another decade.

  • Robert Parker, April 2008, Score: 88

    An attractive, reasonably priced offering, the 2005 Senejac exhibits subtle aromas of roasted herbs interwoven with scents of cedar, fruitcake, black currants, and cherries. Medium-bodied and slightly tannic, it will provide savory drinking over the next 10-12 years. Drink: 2008 - 2020.

  • Robert Parker, April 2007, Score: 87-88

    An excellent deep ruby/purple color is followed by a wine with supple tannin, sweet black currant, underbrush, and damp earth characteristics. Drink it over the next 10-12 years. Drink 2007-2019

  • Robert Parker, April 2006, Score: 90-92

    Starting in 2005, the luxury cuvee, Karolus, will no longer be made as the proprietors believe they have raised the level of Senejac to that of a luxury wine. The 10,000-case 2005, made by well-known oenologist, Jacques Boissenot (a disciple of the late Emile Peynaud), is the finest I have yet tasted. Its saturated ruby/purple color is accompanied by rich aromas of licorice, forest floor, blackberries, and chocolate-infused black currants. This medium-bodied, moderately tannic, rich wine is clearly of classified-growth quality. It will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring, and last for 12-14 years. Drink: 2008 - 2020.

  • Decanter, April 2006, Score: 17/20

    Deep colour, lively fragrant style with pure vineyard fruit and definite elegance. Drink 2009-18. (17 points)

  • Jancis Robinson, April 2006, Score: 16.5

    Healthy dark crimson. Very opulent and full on the nose with good round hit of fruit on the mid palate. Still pretty inky but good attack and energy. Well done for the quite long term. Do not approach for a while! Very classic dry Médoc. Drink 2015-23.

  • Wine Spectator, April 2006, Score: 85-88

    A soft and round wine with currant and berry character, medium body and a silky texture. Almost 89-91. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.


Château Sénéjac

Since this château was purchased by Thierry Rustman, the former manager of Château Talbot, thequality of its wines has gone from strength-to-strength.



The Haut-Médoc is an appellation within the Médoc that stretches along the left bank of the Gironde from Blanquefort in the south to the north of Bordeaux. The region encompasses the more famous communes of St-Estèphe, Pauillac, St-Julien and Margaux. Following the 1855 classification many of its most famous estates were classified and scored as first, second, third, fourth or fifth growths. This was based on their social and commercial positions at the time. Most of these classed growths use the village appellation name, such as Pauillac. However five of these classed growths fell outside a village appellation so take the name Haut-Médoc. Many of the vineyards which are classified as Haut-Médoc may actually also be referred to as Cru Bourgeois wines. These wines have lower permitted yields and so offer great value for money.
